ABOUT

Current Works

I have both books (Visions of Redemption and Visions of Deception) on Ingram-Spark. Ingram-Spark is the publisher that bookstores, libraries, etc. go to purchase books by self-published authors. Having my books available there will allow me to look into bookstores for signings and distribution of my books. I have a couple of bookstores in mind to contact for a signing. As I make progress on this endeavor, I will keep everyone posted here.

Visions of Revenge (working title) is in the first stage of development. The outline looks good. I use the outline as a description of each chapter and the flow of the story. There’s only a description of each chapter—a paragraph for each. When I have that where I want it, which I do for Visions of Revenge, I can get into the story knowing where it’s headed. Of course, as the story develops the outline changes and gets out of sync with where the story goes. The characters take over the direction of the story. And I can’t do anything about that. They are so controlling!
I have completed the first draft of the first two chapters and already the outline has changed, oh well…

Events

I will be signing books on April 21, 2024, for the Lemonade Days event. I posted the poster on my Facebook page and you can get more information on the Events page of this website. On June 7, 2024, I will be signing books for the Hometown Novel Night in Newnan, GA. I will partner with another author for a space and share the cost. It will be fun to work with someone else and share a space.

On April 27, 2024, I will attend the Self Published Author conference to learn more about the business of self-publishing

I submitted a request to sell books at Dragoncon in September of 2024, but I haven’t heard if I will be included. More on that later.

Personal

The issues with my right leg are going to be ongoing, so enough said about that. I haven’t been walking like I should. I blow it off because it’s raining, or too cold, or I just don’t want to. I’m a procrastinator! Still, the more I move around the better I feel, and I need to get in shape for our trip we have planned in July. I will be doing a lot of walking and I want to enjoy the trip.

All our pets are doing good, but Pumpkin, our 20-year-old cat is having trouble walking and he wants to lay on the bed all day. That’s fine, he’s earned his laying around time. Bleu, our eleven-year-old cat, is doing okay. And, of course, the dog, who is only five years old, is doing great. She is still unsure of anyone coming to the house. Although she did get more friendly with the family. Tommy, our turtle, is going along like he will live forever—he’s twenty years old and is expected to live until he’s thirty, or more.
